Home Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy applies to all personal information collected by Oz Tools Pty Ltd T/A Get Chauffeured (ACN 080 211 132) of Suite 1015/377 Kent Street, Sydney, New South Wales, 2000 via telephone communications, email correspondence and the website located at www.getchauffeured.com.au.

  1. What is “personal information”?
  • The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Act) currently defines “personal information” as meaning information or an opinion about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable:
    • whether the information or opinion is true or not; and
    • whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.
  • If the information does not disclose your identity or enable your identity to be ascertained, it will in most cases not be classified as “personal information” and will not be subject to this privacy policy.
  • You should be aware that the Act contains certain exemptions which may impact upon our privacy obligations. For example, employee records are generally exempt from an organisation’s obligations under the Act. This exemption does not, however, permit us to use personal information contained in employee records for purposes not connected with the employment relationship. Employee records remain confidential.

2. Consents

By using providing us with your personal information via telephone communications, email correspondence or by use of our website, you hereby consent to our Privacy Policy and agree to its terms and conditions.

The kind of personal information that we may collect and hold include contact information (e.g. name, email address, and mobile phone number), age, postal addresses, business addresses, personal addresses, claim numbers, flight numbers, photographs, employment history, educational qualifications, Commonwealth identifiers (e.g. apprenticeship numbers) and financial information (e.g. credit card details).

9. Protection under foreign laws

In some circumstances, foreign data protection laws may have extra-territorial application in Australia and may provide additional protection to individuals if we have collected their personal data from an overseas jurisdiction. Where this is the case, there may be additional rights and remedies available to you under the foreign law.

  • We do not knowingly collect personal information from children. If you are a parent or guardian and believe that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us, and we will promptly delete such information from our systems.
